About the Project

Bass Coast Shire Council has awarded a contract to TS Constructions Pty Ltd to carry out the Upgrade of the Loading Dock at Wonthaggi Union Community Arts Centre (WUCAC).

We appreciate that these works may present an inconvenience and we shall work closely with WUCAC staff throughout these times. Our contractor and staff will make every effort to minimise disruptions during construction. The community, local residents, businesses and other stakeholders will be kept up to date with the project via Council’s website, where appropriate.

Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation.

These works are fully funded by Council in the order of $200,000 and are part of Council’s 2021/22 Capital Works Renewal Program.

Construction works include the installation of a motorised lift platform to enable equipment to be raised to the internal floor level or lowered to the external ground level.

The project aims to modernise the WUCAC building and provide a safe working environment during deliveries of equipment and operation of the loading dock thus providing the following benefits:

  • reduce manual handling of heavy equipment and thus mitigate OH&S risks
  • reduce the likelihood of damage to equipment
  • improve the overall speed and efficiency of loading dock deliveries
  • Demolition of existing internal concrete ramp, roller-door and external brick wall to ground level
  • Excavation and construction of a concrete pit, installation of a motorised lift platform and roller door
  • Re-levelling external concrete paving to suit new loading dock vehicle hardstand
  • Cordoned off construction zone located in Hefford Lane - R.O.W. i.e. rear of WUCAC building as required.
  • Appropriate traffic and pedestrian control measures will be implemented onsite during these works. This will be a construction zone and that we appreciate that for your own safety and others that access will be restricted
  • The use of heavy plant and machinery including noisy and vibration works for construction including use of trucks for removal or delivery of materials
